I'm still confused as to when evolution became a fact , there are still many un answered questions to evolution and a lot of wishy washy answers , nothing is really solid .

Evolution is fact, but it is not complete. It is fact that evolution occurs. The idea that everything started from the big bang, and that we evolved from single-celled organisms all the way to modern day humans is not a fact.

You won't find that in visible examples, as that takes a long time.

I just cannot take him seriously. Unfortunately, although it is pretty clear to me that he is just serving as a human troll, there are plenty on the right that do take him seriously and believe that he is being completely sincere. That is where it gets a bit dangerous.



Bingo.

As bdreason points out above, If you use that logic - "If I haven't seen it, I can't believe it exists" - then how can you believe in God? It's a double standard.

I'm pretty sure public school curriculum is not a law being passed by congress, so I fail to see how this applies.

Not that I am advocating teaching creationism, but neither politician has any grasp of the constitution

You are getting into the long debated interpretation of the First Amendment. Clearly, those who penned the Constitution made it painstakingly clear that this country should not have federal or state mandated religion and that there should be no government interference in religious practice.

The Supreme Court has long interpreted the First Amendment to prohibit prayer and religious practices in public schools. This would also apply to any study of creationism, because those beliefs hinge on blind faith and cannot be proven scientifically or logically.

So, based on the interpretations of the First Amendment by the most powerful judicial body in the country (and the world, for that matter), there is application of what is said in the document to the pushing forth of certain religious beliefs in public school.

While the First Amendment does point to 'Congress' as the body that shall not make any laws respecting an establishment of religion, Congress acts as a symbol of all governmental bodies, both federal and state.

He was one of those annoying 'morning zoo' guys on FM radio in the mornings. I wouldn't call him a shock jock, though... That would be an insult to the likes of Howard Stern who have actual talent.

Check out Beck on the Morning Zoo.
